    Default Carmelo AndNoD is a Fraud.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]



    this generation's glenn robinson.

    Very, very talented scorer but not a good enough overall leader or mature enough to put all your stock in.
    average or below in passing, defense and rebounding.

    We got the best O in the league that can only get better because we're a young team with a lot of talent, skill and room for growth.


    Don't need Melo.

    I think I even read/heard/saw once how DEN fans don't have much faith, at times, with Carmelo at the end of games? Not sure if I dreamt that or not.

    I could/might agree with this assessment, but I saw with my own 2 eyes Anthony almost beat Lakers all by himself. He was an absolute bull. I also watched him carry Syracuse to a championship.

    So, he's proven he can win, and has winning inside him.

    I imagine if you put Melo with Shaq and then Gasol, and put Bryant on a team with Keyon Martin and the Bird.... Well, we might say that Kobe is Rice and Melo a HOF player.

    I think Felton-Stat is the perfect duo to put Melo with. Toss is a Fields (jack of all trades) and a Big who can rebound and defend, and you'll get a title.

    TRUST ME.


    Now, I do agree that I wouldn;t sell the famr (in other words, give up 3 of these 4: Fields, Chandler, Gallo & Randolph). But if I could get Melo only sacfricing 2 of them.... I have to do it.

    I just remember that LAK series.... and I think his best bball is still ahead of him.

    I don't have exact stats off top of head; but isn't Melo averaging 7+ boards and 3assists? For a sf with a score-first game, his assists are almost downright good, and his rebounding is very good.

    The maturity issue and leadership -- we can only evaluate what we know. Leading 'Cuse to a championship. As a freshman. Consistently leading league in game winners and buzzer beaters.

    And he's still very young. Plenty of time to develop the killer attitude and winning mentality we all want. Really, how many players his age -- 25/26 -- have a winning attitude/maturity greater than Melo, or his accomplishments in those areas?

    Look at STAT! He had a downright ****ty attitude for his reputation, bickered, got pissy. Was known for downright atrociously inconsistent rebounding for his ability, terrible passing, turnover prone, couldn't lead or carry a team, etc.

    But he had it in him. He wanted NY. Just like Melo, IMO.

    I just want a title so bad, a dynasty. I don't see how we realistically do it w/o Melo or an equivalent superstar like player. I'd hate for our franchise to work so hard only to be locked into being a Hawks type team, or a bit better like ORL.

    ^^ Mafra that blueprint you mention is exactly what I've been thinking. For the complimentary big, we could acquire one this off season. It's so rich with complimentary bigs: Perkins, BigBaby, Dalembert, etc.

    I agree though we can't claim to be better then the Hawks yet, as we lost to them earlier in the year. Hopefully we'll beat them next time

    3 assists is good? I don't think so considering he dominates the ball offensively. I don't get where the hype is with this guy. He averages less than 30% from the 3pt line and shoots below 45% FG. Having 45% is not bad but for a guy who's suppose to be a dominant offensive player, I don't think it's that great. With that said, I do think there's something there considering practically every analyst, including JVG, is saying the Knicks should give up the farm for that guy. I don't know...

    If Donnie can get him for a reasonable price, you have to do it. I believe when a player smells a chance at a title, which would be the case if you pair STAT n Melo, u have that. I am against blowing up the team, meaning Chandler, Gallo and Fields, but I would not hesitate to give up any combo of the two.

    I rather get Mayo on the cheap and a big man IMO.

    and by the way people that keep bringing up Sam Dalembert, he's way to slow has no offense and would be a bench warmer in Mike D's system.

    Now use that same nifty program to figure out where his Denver teammates are rated at. You can't get an assist if your teamates dont knockdown shots.

    Its the reason why Rondo averages so high in assists. Bunch of veterans who can knock down easy open shots. Put Rondo on the clippers and tell me how many assists he averages. Oh btw Rondo also leads the league in turnovers.

    Question Mark

    Am i the only one that thinks we should just get Varejao and Gibson and if we're lucky possibly Mayo as well?Getting Carmelo would mean getting rid of Chandler,Gallinari,or Fields and thats just not worth it.

    I guess your lack of insight and information is substituted by your emotional insults.

    I just feel really sorry for you.
